We are the ultimate California coast destination beach triathlon!

Choose Olympic or Sprint Distance, and you can substitute the  protected bay swim with a kayak or SUP!

Check out our race video below, updated to show the 2023 and 2024 transition/finish/swim experience!

You can swim or paddle our protected Morro Bay Harbor, bike iconic Highway 1, and run the beach and boardwalk to a finish under the Gibraltar of the Pacific: Morro Rock!

Wondering what it’s like? Let the racers tell you themselves.

“The course is great – absolutely beautiful, and just a bit of “adventure” thrown in. Staff/volunteer support and finish-line activities and food were MUCH appreciated. Wish I could have stayed longer at the finish area to enjoy a beer!” – P. Taylor

“I trained a lot for this event but nothing prepared me for the actual event. The swim was harder then I thought, the bike was great and the run was challenging because of the sand element.” – M. Rockey

“I enjoyed the run. I hate to run!!!!!! So it seems odd that I would pick this section with the never ending run in the sand. But I enjoyed the changes from an open trail run to a dense wooded trail to an open beach run along the ocean to a paved fast finish. I have never participated in an event that had a run as nice as this!!!!” – B. Coop

“The scenery is amazing. That’s part of why I do this tri every year. I also love that the run course is different than other triathlons (in that it includes a variety of terrain).” – C. Bare

“The biking! It was so fun and not too hard and SO FREAKING BEAUTIFUL. And all the tough spots had CHP and/or volunteers directing traffic which was so awesome. And the course was verrry well-marked.” – L Schwartzman

“I think prior to the tri starting the transition areas was a great place to be. Participants were very nice, in good spirits, and very friendly. Also as I was finishing the swim there were several great spectators cheering me. I also enjoyed very much riding along HWY 1. It was absolutely beautiful and a fantastic ride.” – B. Reynolds

“It is very nice to ride/run along the ocean and watch the waves roll in. This is one of the best location races I have done.” – B. Coop

“I think the setting for this tri is gorgeous, and it is fun and nice to have a different type of experience with the small tri venue.” – R. Stevens

“I have participated in triathlons for the last 30 years in many different venues. This is one of the most beautiful areas in which I have done a tri.” – A. Leuker
